It is that time of the year again and we're excited to indulge in a one-of-a-kind, nine-day-long food festival coupled with religious festivities. Many see Navratri as a departure from the mundane routine, an opportunity to explore the ingredients that are otherwise stacked at the extreme end of your pantry.
